Medical and Mental History

MBTI & Enneagram: INFJ, 01 – the Reformer
Analysis: deliberate and forthcoming, flexible, reserved in judgement, values meaningful and deep connections with others, resilient but slow to trust, perceptive but somewhat oblivious to social pleasantries, reflective and ready to lend an ear, sincere in her actions, obstinate and steadfast, resolute in her pursuit of collective goals.

Mental History: T’Aria is an even-tempered woman whose tolerant no-nonsense attitude affords her remarkable patience and diplomacy. She often resorts to an inflexible, judicious position in social settings that enables her to navigate otherwise overstimulating environments. Elsewhere, she appears tranquil and deeply invested in others’ well-being. That isn’t to suggest she is above banter, however. T’Aria is blunt, but time and experience have tempered her callous. As a leader, she assumes a facilitative role that values interconnection and communication. But, a history of unresolved emotional turmoil has instilled in her a fear of intimacy and commitment that often distances her from those under her command. She, therefore, appears cold and detached. Although T’Aria is actively working to dismantle and unlearn her self-isolating behaviours, she finds it increasingly difficult to grapple with the emotions from which they protected her.

Personal History

Early Life: T’Aria was born the second of fraternal twins—Rovalat and Kawarda—in Raal Province, Vulcan. Their mother was the executive officer of the Tu’Pari, while their father served as an intelligence operative for the V’Shar. Neither were present in the twins’ formative years.

Rovalat and Kawarda were raised in an environment that valued culture and education in equal measure. Like most Vulcans, their grandparents enlisted a hands-off parenting style that afforded them the liberty to develop a sense of self. But Rovalat was a particularly volatile child who desperately needed the structure and supports her family could not offer. Rovalat’s grapple with logic and restraint subjected her to disciplinary action at school and at home. Despite its disruption, Rovalat’s turbulence imparted a high aptitude for performing arts. She was a gifted dancer and budding pupil in the practice of Suus Mahna, pursuits that would later prove therapeutic and crucial on her path to logic.

Following an incident with a classmate, Rovalat was remanded to a strict disciplinary programme at a monastery under Master Radzhek. She spent thirteen rough months in their care. Rovalat was slow to trust the people around her, and she refused to fall in line with the others, fearing she would lose a piece of herself in the process. But it was either conform or risk exile. Tentatively, Rovalat fell into the process, but she never once followed it blindly. Meditation, philosophy, the arts… Rovalat slowly found a sense of self and, with it, control. She accepted that emotional purging was beyond question but managed to acquiesce just enough to appease a rigid Vulcan society.

Rovalat completed the remaining years of her education at home. She demonstrated a tendency toward biological sciences, excelling in organic chemistry and physiological studies. Though hampered by her internal struggle, Rovalat pursued specialised courses with the Raal Institute of Interspecies Studies at fifteen.

Later, Rovalat undertook Kahs-wan alongside her brother, Kawarda. Refused the right to enlist each others’ help, the twins were separated and sent to survive ten days in the the Forge. Harsh conditions prevailed. On the fourth night, an electrical sandstorm consumed the land, threatening claim over the lives of anyone caught in its midst. Instinct urged her to take shelter, but a scream erupting just around the bend demanded otherwise. Rovalat abandoned her instinct and pursued the victim. She found a boy lugging himself across the sand, his leg broken and abdomen punctured by debris. Rovalat knew her aid would cost them both their rite—Kahs-wan was a ritual of survival—but she couldn’t bring herself to leave him. Against the wind, she scrambled over and pulled her arms under his armpits, with a dull “You can thank me later..”

Too weak to protest, Rovalat dragged him into a notch large enough to shield them from the storm and waited. She applied makeshift bandages born of tattered cloth and a split of gnarled wood and fabric. Though managing to stabilise his wounds, an absence of food and water worsened his condition. He quickly slipped into a healing trance.

The storm lasted three days, Rovalat tending tirelessly to Saros’ wounds and to their protection. His condition made little improvement. When the storm subsided, Rovalat elected to carry Saros back to the compound. The journey was long and arduous, reducing them to near defeat, but they made it in time to relieve Saros to professional care.

Rovalat’s actions rejected the rules set for by the Kahs-wan ritual, but her sacrifice and attention to the needs of another proved she was ready for the step into adulthood.

Where Raal met the Voroth Sea, T’Lara, matriarch of the S’t’Kal Pola, bestowed new names upon Rovalat and Kawarda. Rovalat was named T’Aria, “for [her] unyielding persistence to preserve life in relentless conditions.” Kawarda was named Hanesh, “for [his] keen survival skills and command over the land.” Both were granted the rite of passage and joined their ancestral line as full members of Vulcan society.
